    Race Face Cranks ?

    Looking to change out my crankset. I ride singlespeed and really don't see the point of buying a double or triple, removing the ring(s) and than try to sell them.

    Makes more sense to me to buy a dedicated SS crankset, unless someone can convince me otherwise.

    Anyway, I'm looking at Race Face Turbine SS. There are 2 models, the Turbine and the Turbine Enduro. Aside from a $12 price difference and an 8 gram weight difference I'm not seeing the point of 2 similar SS cranksets.

    Am i missing something here?

    The SS has a bash guard, the Enduro does not and is meant to use a chain guide. Why not save a bunch of money and buy a used SLX or XT and a single speed ring?

    Now what you would want is the RF cranks with the new narrow/wide ring

    A thought. Concerned about used. I imagine if i get a new BB i wouldn't have much to worry about. Can a used crankset have damage not easily visible or would the BB be of greater concern?
